The Useful Wedding Gift 



There is probably no other one wedding gift which repre- 
sents so much genuine utility and permanence, and to wliich 
the memory of the giver so ardently clings as a small or large 
chest of family silver. 

Particularly is this true if it comes from the Challoner & 
Mitchell Co., Ltd. — for all our silver is of the English stan- 
dard of fineness. 

For the limited purse we offer some exquisite Fish and 
Fruit Sets, in oak cases, at $15. Then for the more elaborate 
presentations we have some very handsome chests of Sterling 
Silver Flatware priced up from $135. Of course, we have 
numerous chests priced between the above.

thousands, set lipon the Americans -with 
the intention of- banging them.

"wanted us to leave the province imme-

to do, MH the Italians would have said 
tliat we had fled, and wo would liavo \ost 
all that wo have already achieved. Later, 
however, vtc took our departure accord-

The Golonist Has All the News 



A journalist of consltlctvible VGiiowii 
and 11 I'onuer [jroiessor or history in 
tlio UnlvLT.slty of Ciinibrldfio, Mr. T. 
Prothero, editor of the Quarterly Itf- 
vlew, :i monthly published lii Ijondon, 
is ill preaeiu in tlie city, a gueut at 
Iho. lOmprejs llutp). I'^or the iiiiat six 
months he lias been on the continent 
dellveriny: Joetiires at Hurvurd, Vale, 
and McGill UMlversitles, and is now 
liaylng ii siglit-seeinff visit to the 
West. 

This Is Mr. Prothero'8 first visit to 
the New World, and while he has as 
yet seen little of Canada, he has gath- 
(^red impresslo'ns of an interesting 
eharacter during his stay on 'the 
Auierlonn side. "The United Statos," 
he said, In conversation with the 
Coljnist, "is beginning to recognize 
lier reriiionsibllltlos as well as her 
rights, and the r,esiilt Is that lately 
she has been- taking a much Kr(>nter 
Interest in foreign affairs. Some 
years \)nrk the Anierleaiis were so 
wraiipod up in themselves that e\'en 
the ni wsijapcr.s there i)ald little or no 
attention to the great events transpir- 
ing in utliev eoinitrles. A ehaiigo has 
come over the .scene, liowcver, and now 
I remark that pul)llc oiilnkiii Is show- 
ing much greater attention to Intor- 
liutlonal e\ents. Tlie i)olitiei:ins at 
\\'asliingtiMi are also hi-glnning to 
teke a iiart in tlie game of world iioli- 
tics. This emanclpntiou from wliat 
may be described as national sell'- 
absorptlon, will tend to broaden the 
splitros of thought and action in the 
country, and will make the United 
states a factor to he reckoned with 
In all matters where international in- 
tervention or arbitration Is noi:es3ary. 
United States and Canada 
"The attitude of Anierleti towards 
Canada apijears to be of the most 
frlciullj- eliaracter, and the same can 
be said of the way in which she now 
regards Kngland. The United States 
has evidently come to a full realiza- 
tion of the fact that Canada, by the 
extreme loyalty she has evinced to- 
wards the Motherland, has dellnltely 
ilecldcd not to become merged with 
the republic on her trontiers. Heal- 
izlng this and further realizing the 
wonderful destiny of this great Do- 
minion, America has concluded that 
the more cordial the relations which 
exist between herself and lier neigh- 
bor . the greater the possibility ot u 
growing liade Interchange to the mu- 
tual enhancement of tlio material 
wealth of both countries. 

"The old-time habit of twisting tlie 
lion's tall also appears to liave be- 
come a thing of the past. 1 do not 
lielii've that the relations between the 
Aiiglo-.Saxoii jieople were ever more 
friendly than they are today, and It 
Is a splendid omen for the future of 
i the i'Jiigllsh-spi.'aklng races. . 
j "You want me to siieal; of politics 
I at home? It Is six. months since 1 
I have been then', and many things of 
I a momentous charactin' have hapiieiieil 
! since then. 'The death of the King 
I will undoubtedly post|ioiie the crisis 
j in the political situation, but It will 
I iirobahly again come to a head during 
i the siiring of next year. Tliere is 
talk of an autumn session of parHa- 
1 meiit when the new budget, wlilch 
is unlikely . to bo a contentious one, 
will bo Introduced. It will probably 
be passed without much opposition. 

Old Country Politics 

"The two (luestioiis which stand out 
In the iiolltlcH of the L'nited Kingdom 
at present are that of limiting the 
power of the House of Lords and tlie 
i Question of Home ftule. Practically 
T the whole country now realizes that 
t some reform is necessary In the pow- 
I ers of the House of Lords, but as to 
I the nature of that reform there is a 
multiplicity of opinions. The extreme 
.section of the Liberals and jinssilily 
the entire Labor party want the llrst 
chamber abolislied. The main body 
of the I.,iberals wants the veto power 
so much curtailed that were Its wishes 
carried out tlie House of Ijords would 
be oiilj- a name und would possess 
no power whatever. That the bulk 
of the iieoij|(! of. the United Kingdom 
, entertain this view of the situation 
I is uulikelx-, and when the question of 
the inacticai abolition of the veto 
power comes up early next yeor it Is 
almost certain to precipitate a gener- 
al election. 

•Then again, Premier Asqulth has 

♦ ! pronouneed hlniaelf and his party In 
f j favor of Home Rule for Ireland. He 
! I did su ivliile the late election cam- 
I I paign was In progress and again In 
t ' parliament shortly before the late 
t I King's death. So Ills government Is 

♦ I practically committed to Home Rule. 
; I As long as the Irish party retains the 

♦ 'balance of power, ns It iloes In the 

♦ I Iiresont house, there is little fear of 
J j Premier Asnuitli not being reminded 
i I of Ills promises In connection with Ire- 
land. So th'' riuestlon of Home Rule 
Is one which is certain to be a main Is- 
sue In the next general election. The 
cries of rioiiie Rule and tin- abolition 
of till? \-etn power will becloud the Issue 

i I of Tiirlir rteform vs. Vri'i'. '•friido, al- 
I I though the Uiiidulst liart,\-, in si'lte of 
j the iulvic(' of Lord ]5nselier\-, has no 
t I Id-.M of letting this part of llii'lr policy 
^ j become a dead letter. 
4 I "What do I llilnk the result of the

♦ I dliiicult to giiiige accurately, but 1

T theie Is e\^ery po.sslbi!ity of Mr. Bal- 
I four being the next Pretjiler. The 

LIbcrola have been well advised In 
pnsi|)onlng tho crisis for >a year.

J Canada's Naval Policy 

♦ i Qiii'.'tioned about the attitude of 

I'higlaiid toward.'< the Uanadliiii naviil 
iiiillc\, .Mr. l^rothero was very ds^diillo 
In stilting that a I'ash gift to tide over 
th'e present emergency would have 
i)oen much more acceptable to the 
Motherland. Thti establlshmoiH of a 



cruiser squadron might prove satis- 
factory, if It wa.s so iltuuted that It 
could act In conjunction with other 
squadrons of the main licet if neces- 
sary. There was one thing, however, 
he could not understand about Can- 
ada's Intentions, and that was the 
clause In the Canadian naval bill 
■\vhereby the vessels of the IDomlnion 
navv could not go to war without the 
consent of Parliament. "War, Jlr. Pro- 
thero pointed out, might break lOosB 
very suddenly— In a moment almost. 
In the event of a sudden cruiitlon be- 
tween Great IJrilaiu and a foreign 
power, the entire Canadian nii\ul 
squadron might bo sunk by the enemy 
while It was awaiting the permission 
of Us Parliament to enter Into .the 
fight. The clause appeared tp him a 
ridiculous one, unworkable, and as .Mr. 
Horden had pointed out .at" Ottawa, Ut- 
terly out of keeping with the tradi- 
tions of the, British navy. In the mat- 
ter of her' EiaVal policy Canada had not 
followed' the advice of the Admiralty, 
but she -was abOlit td malte a ueginning 
in hclplner'to shoulder the burden of 
Imperial defence, and her offort.s would 
be fcdlowed with considerable interest 
by the iiavnl and military authorities 
in the Motherland. . 

Mr. Prothero, who Is accompanied by 
his wife, leaves for the east toinorrov.', 
malting the return trip via Canada. 
He expressed his regret that he would 
not have time to make a study of Cau- 
ndlaii problems. This couiury was 
becoming very well known In I'^nglnnd, 
through advertising agencies and 
through the newspaper^., ills long ab- 
sence from London would prevent hlni 
spending, any time during his trip 

I across the continent, but he expressed 
the hope that he would be able to re- 
turn at a future date, when he would 
certainly again visit Victoria, which 

I he regarded ' ns a mo-st picturesque 

i spot.

Second Engineer of Steamer Comox 
Badly Injured by Men Who 
Robbed Him. 



VANCOUVER, Juno 16.— -Clubbed 
Into Insensibility on the waterfront last 
night, George Miller, second engineer 
of the Union Steamship Company's 
vessel . Comox, was robbed of $47 and 
a gold watch, and Is today suffering 
from a bad wound on the iiead, :i bit- 
ten hand, and bruises and contusions 
all over the body. Two men commit- 
ted tile assault, which took place on 
the (MMt. tracks outside the LTnlon 
Coinp.'iny's wharf. 

:\Illler was returning to the Comox 
about 1 a.m., and he says that when 
he turned down the tracks towards his 
duck from ('olumliia avenue no one was 
In sight. Tlie C.P.R. has nn Icehouse 
near the entrance to the L'nion wharf 
and a locomotive was standing on the 
track at that point. .Miller had to 
pass along this locomotive and as lio 
did so twq men jumped on him from 
the cab of the engine and struck him 
over tile head with a sandbag. Mil- 
ler struggled for a sliort time, but the 
two thugs beat lilm and kicked him un- 
til he was unconscious, when they went 
through his p09Kets, taking his money, 
watch and palters, iand rlppln? tlie lin- 
ing of the poc)co^ in their eflforts to 
get everything tljft'j unfortunate engin- 
eer had. t»i«'i''" 
• When MUler^^p^iVned- hiB senses he 
made his wa,v 'to .the Comox, which 
was only a-ishefrf'tllstance away and 
his wounds were dressed. -.'He Is badly 1 
battered over the liond and one of his 
nssallniits actually chewed his thumb I 
ill the struggle. I 

The locomotive from which the 
thugs Jumjied Is one of two marked ' 
"P.C.S.L.rt.," which have been stand- I 
ing Idle for somo r!ay.» at that point. j 

There Is a theory along the \rnter- 
front ihat the holdup men were wait- 
ing for tlie purser of the Comox, Icnow- 
ing that he would have a considerable | 
amount of money on him. |

Imd been sold to the public at Hctltious-

Not Iiloensed In Canada. 

OTTAAVA, .lune IG.— The United 
Wireless Telegrapli company, which 
wa.s raided In New York, has little foot- 
hohl In Canada except In the niniilpu- 
lations of stockholders. An Inquiry 
made In departmental circles today 
elicited Information that the company 
made four different applications for a 
license to erect stations on (ho great 
lakes. The last of these was put in 
six month.s ago. The government has 
never entertained the applicntlons for 
the reason that the concern Is not in- 
corporated in Cnniul.'i, and further, that 
It did not subscrlho to the conditions 
of the wireless conference at Berlin. 
Considerable Influence has been exerted 
by Canadian stockholders to have tho 
license sought for granted, but the com- 
pnny, on the strength of the Inquiries 
made, has always been regarded with a 
measure of suspicion which the latest 
developments appear to justify.

Mr. Shallcroas: "That craft would

Mr. Bullen produced a policy cover-

ilr. aiiallcross: "Strong remarks 
have been made about Challoner cSt 
iMltchcU not placing their insurance

iMr. Short: "When we come to a 
point where protection on goods in 
transit, was necessary we interviewed 
a large number ol men in Victoria, 
and when lUr, Challoner was in J^on- 
don he secured a blank policy, and 
submitted it to agents lu Victoria, One 
had tlie pulley tor six months. All 
stated they could not get tins insur- 
ance." 

Wr. Lennle: •'The only jjluce you 
could get such a ijolicy was from 
I-.luyds'. 

Jlr. tihort: "X think so." 

iMr. l^ennie: "Uld you try-, else- 
wliere'.'" 

Mr. iShort: "I think so." 

Mr. yhallcross: ••Did certain brok- 
ers come to you and refuse' to deal 
with you as a result of placing' your 
insurance at JLloyds?" 

Mr. ahort: "I cannot say person- 
ally." 

Mr. A. W. Koss, of Vancouver: 
"You could get burglary insurance, 
couldn't you'.'" 

Witness: "Yes, but we liad to get 
protection for our customers. If a 
valuable brooch is left, and a atoiio la 
left to be cut in Kurope we have to 
have protection for this while In trans- 1 
mission." 

Mr. Kounsfell, of Vancouver: "It ls| 
unlawful for a company in Canada to 
issue such a policy cuvcring all the 
risks, but they could be covei-ed sep- 
arately, is it not a fact'.' 

.Mr. Hhort: "I don't know so; but 
the fact that wo applied to Victoria 
insurance men and failed to secure 
the policies made us think we could 
not get the risk covered here." 
Could -.Not Get Policy 

Mr. Short said he understood the 
insurance men stated they could not 
get the policies wanted. lie diu :iut 
know whether opporiuiiity was given 
tiiem to cover all the various rlsKs in 
separate policies. They said they 
could not supply tho Insurance. The 
negotiations were carried on by 
Messrs. Challoner & Mitchell. 

The Commission asked that these 
gentlemen be called. 

Mr. A. W. Ross, of Vancouver, 
])ointed out that Under the Dominion 
law the insurance companies could not 
give a single policy covering all these 
risks. 

.Mr. W A, T,!iw«f>M HtatRd his finii 
could cover all the i-isks In various 
companies If the business was of- 
fered. The rate would be very much 
higher, liowever. 

Mr. Leniiio said the witness was 
called to give Insurance on a class of 
Insurance which was scarcely com- 
Iiarablo with the business of the lire 
Insurance companies. 

.Mr. Short said tho policy covered 
rLsk.s on goods sent through countries 
through which It was illegal for them 
to be sent. 

He understood his company had re- 
covered for goods broken Into near 
Calgary, when in transit from Uer- 
many, 

Mr. G. tk Bald\yln, city comptrol- 
ler for Vancouver, said Insurance 
companies paid |100 license fees at 
Vancouver. Tho sura of $0,500 \vas 
paid last year,* Ha considered , tho 
collection of that revenue should be 
contLnuod. Mayor i.<eo, -who had to 
leave, authorized, hlni to state that 
these were also his views, 

Mr. Bodwell asked to what purpose 
the money was used. 

AVltiicss: "General revenue pur- 
poses." 

Mr. E. v.- Bodwell: "Don't you 
think it should bo devoted to lire pro- 
tection only?" 

He did not. Ho considered the city 
had the right to aiiprojiriatc It for 
what purposes wore required. 

Mr. Bodwell went Into the collection 
of licenses and taxation generally, and 
especially the licensing of Insurance 
agenta. He wated to know tho un- 
derlying principle', as to why an In- 
surance compainy sh.ould have to pay 
a llconse. 

"If lasuranoeVeompanles were tax- 
ed, why not la'wyers?" asked Mr. J3od- 
well. ■ , . ■ ' • 

"Wo tried to get a license from tho 
lawyers, but couldn't 'do it," said tho 
witness. 

Mr. Baldwin said that while SG.SOO 
WQS derived from insuriinco com- 
panies for licenses, the city paid back 
$4, GOO for policies. 

Mr. Bodwoll said Mr. Rosa Inform- 
ed him that tho ijuslriess don? in Vnn- 



gal question involved regarding the 
status of the underwriters rassoclation 
and he produced aW"'oplnlon'from Mr. 

R. T. Elliott adverse to tho associa- 
tion. He considered the question 
whether the association was a danger- 
ous one was within the scope of the 
enquiry. 

The opinion was not read. 

Mr. Lennle said the board ■was nec- 
essary to tho conduct of fire Insur- 
ance business In thl.s country. 

Mr. Shallcross said he could not 
concede this. The board. If advisory 
only, was useful, but should not be 
used for compulsion in any way. 

Mr. Lennle said he did not con- 
sider the question of legality or il- 
legality of this board was' one for 
the commission. 

Mr. Shallcross said the question of 
whether the conduct of the board was 
a restraint of trade waa one to bo

Importance of Securing- Con- 
vention 'Of' National Libraty 
Association Is'-: Recognized 
Generally V 



The hope Is expressed by citizens 
Kenorally that the' eflfprts of Mr. E. O 
S. Scholefleld, prdvlribial librarian, to 
bring the convention of the National 
Association of Librarians to Victoria 
l.n 1911 will be succeiaful^ 

The fact that ,thc»'-Mqrthwest Associ- 
ation of Librarians hasi' endorsed' tho 
proposal to bring tho association to 
the Capital of British Columbia next 
year la regarded as being of great 
value, and the hope Is expressed that 
the claims, of this city should be press- 
ed strongly at Alacklnaw at the end 
of the present month ivhen the nation- 
al assocla'tlon is In progress Is freely 
voiced. The matter Is looked upon 
as a business proposition, and It Is 
believed that the city, and tho Devel- 
opment League should take the mat- 
ter up and see that Mr. Scholefleld, if 
it is at all possible, is sent to Macki- 
naw to urge Victoria as the scone of 
next year's sessions. 

That the members of the associa- 
tion -vvlll be charmed with Victoria if 
they decide to accejit the Invitation 
Is regarded as a foregone conclusion. 
One of tho members who visited the 
city recently whole as follows to Mr. 
Scholefleld after his departure: 

"Since I have had the pleasure of 
seeing Victoria I am more than ever 
interested in your ^purpose to Invite 
the An|er,IcaQ Library Association to 
hold its annual, meeting in your cltv 
in 1911, and will be pleased to do what 
I can to favor th& project 

"I am sure that you will u^ovide a 
royal welcome and that very many 
librarians from all parts of the United 
States will be glad to Improve such 
an opportunity to visit this outpost 
of the continent, and that It will bo 
a delightful meeting. But It is still 
more certain to my mind that such a 
gathering will serve the interests of 
Victoria and of your province In u 
marked degree. The Llbro.ry Associ- 
ation stands for tho Idea that tho best 
results of the world's experience, as 
well as the clearest thought and the 
most quickening Inrluences of tl'io best 
men and women at their best are to 
be found In the books so that the 
public free library is everywhere the 
distributor to everybody of all that is 
best, leading to a general advance In 
Intelligence and character. 

Growth of Association 
"Tho National Association, founded 
in 187C, and meeting annually since, 
has appealed to public sentiment anil 
lias met everywhere with a generous 
and even wonderful response us shown 
In the remarkable growth of libraries 
In the last twenty- live years. Only 
twice lia.s the Association met on tho 
Paclllc Coast: At San Francisco In 
1891, and at Portland in lao.'i. Each 
time tho meeting liaa given now life 
to library enteriirlse, starting a for- 
ward movement that has grown 
stronger ;uid wider from year to year. 

"It will certainly be the same if tho 
meeting can be brought to Victoria. 
The newest phase:-? ot the subject will 
be under discussion, will attract at- 
tention .and Inlluences already at work 
will receive strength and direction. 
Tho number aiii! character of those di- 
rectly engaged in library work will, 
of necessity, attract public attention 
and be remembered. Your people 
will, I am sure, be quick to recognize 
the work of library promotion as a 
great and vital? educatlonal'-niorement 
as Important In Its- way as the chll- 
dron's schools and .r'eWJy - essential to 
tho public system .cd^'rdd^atlon. From 
your point of view I tl'wold' say that 
this meeting should csHalnly be so- 
cured for. Victorlaii- fit .imsslblb.

THE CAPIADJAN NORTHERN 

Some llttlo disappointment has been 
exprcs.scd btscauso the President and 
the First Vloo-Prosldent of the Cana- 
dian Northern have xsome and gone 
without saylnig anything verj' definite 
regardlner the carrying out of the 
plans of the company. The public Is 
entitled to some explanation and we 
are in a position to give it, not by 
the authority of either of those gentle- 
men given I'or that purpo.so, but by 
virtue of the statements made by them 
In regard. to thu business that brouglit 
thorn to tlio Coast at the time of their 
recent visits. Mr. jAIaim, who was 
the first to arrive, came out chiefly 
In connection with tila Interests at 
Stewart and elsewhere at the head 
of Portland Canal. He fllscu.-sed 
some matter.'! co.-.neeted with the Can- 
adian Northern, but said expressly 
that ho proposed to return in the 
course of a few weeks with Mr. Mac- 
kenzie and remain here long onough 
to get railway matters fully under 
way. He did not at that time ex- 
pect to be followed so soon by Mr. 
MaoK-enzie. The latter came for the 
purpose of closing up the collieries 
purcliase. He also discussed the 
railway Incidentally, and pretty thor- 
oughly as far as time would permit, 
but said that ho would retura later 
to go Into all the matters fully with 
Mr. Mann. Both these gentlemen 
will be in the city during July, If 
their present plans do not miscarry, 
and they will take up the whole rail- 
way question and begin the work of 
active construction both on the Main- 
land and the Island. Possibly, as 
the surveys are completed on the 
Mslnlantl, work may be let oa that 
part of the line before they return, 
although neither of them has said so, 
aB far as the Colonist knows. 

In respect to construction on the 
Island,- they very naturally are de- 
sirous of receiving tho fullest reports 
from their engineers before letting 
contracts. On the Mainland there is 
only one place where they can go; on 
the Island there may be more than 
one place. Some persons, who pro- 
fess to know, say that there Is only 
one place on the Island, and possibly 
thoy are right; but the comiiany cer- 
tainly ought not to bo required to be- 
gin construction by that route, until 
they have had an opportunity of 
learning if there may not he another 
which will bo more in the Interest of 
the country and of the railway itself. 
The utrngst speed, is being used to get 
together - the neicessary Information 
and when It has been collated a de- 
cision will bo made. Mr. Macltonzio 
Is coiifidiCnt that the preliminary ex- 
amination will be ^completed by the 
ttaje he 'and Mr. Mamj return atiflici- 
ently at least to warrant them in 
awarding* the first contract 

This Is! how the matter- stands, and 
it Is in a very satisfactory condition. 
The comiiiiny Is ready to begin work 
just as soon as It is in a position to 
decide upon a ro.ute that may be re- 
garded as the most suitable for the 
3)urpoBes it has In view, namely the 
complete opening of Vancouver by a 
'line or lines of railway, having in 
nilnd_ also the fact that the road when 
built under the existing contract with 
the Government must be one from 
"VletOTla to Barkley Sound. 



MEASURING LANGUAGE 

Mr. Frank T. Bullen, speaking of a 
pamphlet issued by a certain Board 
of Trade, said that In It the merits of 
the particular locality In the interest 
of which !t was l.s.sued were extolled, 
which, was right and r>ropor, but com- 
parlsonH were drawn with other local- 
ities, which he tliought was a serious 
error, because any adverse comments, 
. which, the people of one locality make 
: .Bfbout another locality, are used by 
persons so disposed to the disadvan- 
tage of the whole country. It is all 
very well to say that wo do not take 
each otlior seriously in respect to mat- 
ters •.of this kind but people abroad 
' flfe llloBly to take us vpry seriously 
indeed. 

This remark of Mr. BuUen's sug- 
gests a lino of thought that may per- 
haps bo advantageously followed, and 
Jt Is that our public men and our 
newspapers do .not always measure 
their language as carefully as they 
ought to.f^.The fault Is not a local one, 
but that do'es not render it any the 
loss hurtful. It is conspicuous in the 
'newH atorlo.s that arc sent out. A fire 
occurs in a city. It is described as a. 
conflagration, and, if It has extended 
for a block or so, the world Is told 
that tho (.place •; has . been practically 
wiped oiit; if the rain falls a little 
heavier than usual, It fortjiwlth bo- 
comes torrential, and the ingenious 
narrator of the incident does not forget 
to weave In a suggestion that very 
many lives may have been lost tft' tho j 



rosultaiit 'floods 'and that the property 
loss may be reckoned by millions. 
Everything' that happens Is Just a 
little worse than anything else that 
ever happened In Us own particular 
class. Such stories lend themselves to 
attractive headlines, and when the 
contradictions come along, tho paper 
usually only - '■■•flnds space, , for them 
.somewhere that Is nibt conspicuous. 
Extraordinary Ideas thus get abroad 
concerning the country. 

There is a rivalry between two 
towns. Rivalry Is healthy; but after 
a time, the papers of one place take 
to saying^ unpleasant things about the 
other place and vice versa. People, 
who are always on the lookout for 
things that can be said to tho disad- 
vantage of the country, make very 
effectual uSe of these uncomplimentary 
things. 

In politics, only a few people think 
It necessary to measure their langiuage. 
Tho other side is always corrupt, in- 
capable, and anything else that is not 
proper. This sort of thing does not 
do very much harm abroad, 'because 
the details of our politics lare not 
of any special Interest to people out- 
side of the country. It does harm at 
home, for It creates the general im- 
pression that the iwlitics of tho whole 
country la rotten; it familiarizes the 
inibllc mind with the idea of corrup- 
tion; It poisons the public mind so 
that a healthy sentiment cannot bo 
dcvolrtpcd. 

We would all be the better for it 
if we took occasion to measure our 
words. From the narrow standpoint of 
efficiency, moderate language is to be 
l)referred to exaggeration. A liberal 
use of adjectives often. Indeed almost 
Invariably, weakens the force of the 
statements in connection "With which 
they are em'ployed. 



IMMIGRATION REGULATIONS 

The Department of Immigration in- 
vites an expression of opinion ujion 
the criticisms directed against the 
regulations in force in Canada in re- 1 
gard to immigrants. It has sent out 
the following letter: 

Numerous items appearing in iho I 
press of the British l.sles, or cabled j 
trom there to the pi ess of Canada, 
commenting unfavorably upon the! 
present Canadian inuiiigratiou reg- j 
ulations, have doubtloas come to your| 
notice, and you will liave observed' 
that criticism is being directed almost] 
exclusively to two regulations; the, 
first requiring lnunigra)Us coming loj 
employment other than farm work, or, 
ill the case of females, to domestic' 
service, to have in their possession atj 
time of landing the sum of $25, in ad- i 
dition to railway transportation to| 
ultimate destination; the second pro- 1 
vidlng that the consent to emigrate to I 
Canada (required by law to bo grant- 1 
ed by the assistant superintendent of| 
emigration for Canada in London,! 
England, to such charity aided emi-j 
grants as he considers suited to this 
country) shall be given only to such 
as are suited for, willing to accept, 
and have' assured employment at farm 
work. 

A strong agitation is being carried 
on to have these regulations whicli 
, we consider necessary for the preven- 
tion of an Inlhix of i)auper Immigra- 
tion, abolished or altered. Practically 
ever.v Canadian pai)er, irrespective ot 
Iiolltical connection, whlcli has so fai 
dealt with the subject, has upheld the 
regulations and insisted upon Canada 
being the sole Judge as to. who shall 
or shall not be allowed to enter this 
country. 

In tills connection I v.'ould consider 
It a favor If you would kindly deal 
etiitorially In your paper witli tho two 
regulations above referred to, ;uk1 
send me a marked copy, so that your 
opinion may bo used in placing tlie 
consensus of Canadian opinion on this 
(piestlou before tho reading- public of 
tile British Isles. ' . ■ ' ■ ' 

We would like to hear from corre- 
spondents upon this subject. Needless 
to say we approve of tho principle 
that Canada shall bo the sole Judge of 
the regulations under which immi- 
grants shall be admitted into tlie 
Dominion. . Anything else would be to 
deny Canada autonomy In respect to 
a matter that concerns her welfare 
more than that of any otlier country. 
At the same time wo thinlc ttiat tho 
e;cerciae of tills right of control .'ihould 
bo with an open mind as to how tho 
United Kingdom can be aided in solv- 
ing the problem presented by the un- 
employed. As to the first regulation, 
wo think that to require a person en- 
tering Canada with no employment in 
view to have at least $21') in money is 
fully as much in the interests of the 
immigrants as in those of this coun- 
try. Most immigrants reach the coun- 
try by way of the Atlantic seaports, 
and any one who knows anything 
about tho matter .at all will not re- 
quire to be told that tho promiscuous 
dumping of immlgrant.s without means 
at those cities would give r\HO to very 
serious conditions, and would be al- 
most certain to be hurtful to the Im- 
migrants thcmBelves. There is plenty 
of work in Canada for nioii who are 
able to do It, but it Ip not to be found 
In sight of the wharves on the At- 
lantic coast, and even where It is 
available an immigrant needs^ a ; little 
time to look around. The only- senti- 
ment to bo taken into consideration in 
this matter Is that which bears upon 
tho Immigrants themselves, and tho 
position of deserving men landing 
penniless or practically so, on tho 
shores of this country Is one calculat- 
ed to arouse the deepest sympathy be- 
sides creating a situation for which it 
may bo difficult to find relief. Wo do 
not want undeserving men on any 
conditions whatever. We do not think 
this regulation ought to apply ' . to 
wives coming .out ,', to th^ir htisbands, 
clilldren -iinder-'age 'coniihg to- their 
parents or to any persons who can 
show that their Immediate future Is 
provided for. In regard to charlty- 



aided' Immigrants, we are veYy-'^trong'" 
ly of, the opinion that It would be a 
zriistake to permit these to enter 
the country at all unless they come 
within the terms of the regulation, 
"We are ; aware that many well-dis- 
posed people I In the Unit;lBjd | IElngdpni 
think that "Canada ought'to tie willing 
to receive such immigrants and pro 
vide worlc for them; but they surely 
cannot understand the conditions 
which exist hero or they would boo 
that what they propose, would prove 
n very serious error.,, ,^It '.can hardly be 
necessary to; add that the ab^ye obser- 
vations apply to^-Immlgrants^'iroim any 
country. '' ■ '[Y ' 



AMUSING ERRORS 

The Ottawa Free Press Is shocked 
bocauso a London society.lady thought 
that ex-President Roosevelt's efdost 
daughter was spoken of as the "Prin- 
cess of Canada." Really such an in- 
cident Is altogether too < trivial for 
serious notice. Of course, there are 
a good many people In the United 
Kingdom who are veiT ill-informed 
about Canada; but then we venture 
to think that a good many people. In 
Canada i,are very ill-lnfornied about 
the United Kingdom. Most amus- 
ing errors happen. What shall wo 
say of the firm of solicitors, who, writ- 
ing to a Canadian Q. C. in regard to u 
case pending before the Judicial 
Committee of tho Privy Council, ad- 
dressed their communication to 

" C. C — — Canada, United 

States of America"? What shall wo 
s;iy of tile Oeriiiaii Postmaster, whoso 
epistle we printed a few days ago, In 
which he apologized- for delaj^ In for- 
warding a letter by saying that there 
were so many Victorias in British 
Columbia that ho did not know to 
which it ought to be sent? What 
shall wo say of the Seattle newspa- 
per man, who seriously corrected an- 
other for writing th;it Britisli Colum- 
bia Is in Canada? If the amusing er- 
rors of this kind that have come un- 
der our notice during the last few 
years only could be printed collective- 
ly they would be as funny os tho 
funniest set of "howlers" ever perpe- 
trated by schoolboys. And the last 
thing in tho world that some people 
learn Is geogra[)hy. It would be cruel 
to mention the name of tho Canadian 
Minister of the Crown, who was un- 
der the impression that Vancouver 
Island projected into the PacKlc Ocean 
from tho western frontier of the Stato 
of Washington, because '■ -^when he 
learned his error he took the greatest 
possible care to inform himself con- 
cerning the geography of this part of 
the country. When people make the 
sort of blunders which aroused the ire 
of the Free Press the reduotlo ad ab- 
surdiim is the best way to,me©t them. 
A prominent buslnoiis man 'df an" East- ' 
ern city relates that some years ago 
he was dljilng "with' some friends in 
Liverpool. . His hostess-said: have 

often wondered, Mr. :\I -,; whati 

you do in the Colonies for fresli meat' 
as you arc so far from the markets." 

To this Mr. M replied: "When 

we can't get it anywhere else, wo go 
out behind tho barn and shoot atbear," 
This led to explanations and the en- 
lightening of more than the hostess 
concerning conditions on this side of 
the water. A well known English- 
man, who spent many months in Brit- 
ish Columbia, told the Colonist that 
he was asked by a lady how people 
travelled In this country. He named 
the various ways of getting around 
from walking to railway trains. The 
lady at once drew herself ui) indig- 
nantly and walked away. Shortly 
after a man friend same up to him 

and said: "Miss is very much 

offended at the way you anewercd her 
question a few minutes ago." Tho 
other said he had only told the simple 
truth, but his friend replied: "Oh, 
coine now, R , none of your tra- 
veller's tales." These things are 
simply amusing, and cannot, or at 
least ought not, to be construed Into 
a casus belli, even in the newspapers. 

The United States Congress wants 
the Postmaster-General to look Into 
the use of aero-planes for the pur- 
pose of carrying the malls. It seems 
just a little too soon, but perhaps It 
is not.

Battalion of Queen's Own Rifles

of Company, jii, City 



One of the Canadian inililia officers 
to represent the Don|inion in tho 
forthcomhft Aldcrshpt..,inap.q?.uvrcs Is 
In the city, Capt. Baud, .Of tlio Queen's

Capt. Band dcclaica that the nn- 
iiouncimciit by Col Sir Henry PcIIott 
that he would take t-Iglu conu.;:nieH of

expense is ono of the niost 
.striking Incldnnts ot loyalty and 
military cnthuslsm. At these 

■manoeuvres there \" >, be, .iccordliig

thousand troops, of which, seventy 
thousand will be reguliu's, and thirty 
thousand territorials. Tho presence 
ot the Canadians will mark an epoch 
It will bo the first time that Canada 
has been represented in the old coun- 
try under sucli conditions. 

That the battalion from tho Domin- 
ion will, bo a credit to it, there Isn't 
the slightest doubt. Tile high stand- 
ard of the Queen's Own Rifles 'is too 
w(}ll known to rifiulro referchco. It 
any corps were choacn by tho auth- 
orities it 1.1 mont probable that that 
crack organization would have " re- 
ceived the honor. But Col. Sir Kanry 
Pellott is taking: other jjrecatitiohs to 
make his command ■worthy. In tho

AWUSEMENTS 



Maude Adams 
Jiaggle Wylle, the little Seotcli wife 
In "What Every Woman Knows," tho 
new Barrle comedy In which Maude 
.Adams is to be seen at the Victoria 
Theatre tonight, and in which she 
has scored her greatest success, typi- 
fies the strongest traits of woman- 
hood, her conduct being a complete 
gospel on the meaning of wifehood. 
Yet tho truth of it all comes out like 
those wonderful observations of child- 
hood, which are encountered occa- 
alonally. There is sucli an utter hu.'k 
of i)reachlness that a good many 
thoughtle.sH people may llnd no uij- 
Ufting In tlie working outof the story, 
but only a merriment that la <]ualnt, 
whimsical and entertaining. It la 
tho supreme artistry of liarrie that 
compasses so .much of breadth and 
depth without seeming to get below 
the surface of things. But the thing 
that every woman knows is clearly 



that her greatest opportunities in life 
is lo supply ilntultlons and tact to 
charactera whore these qualities have 
been crowded out by harder virtues. 
It may seem an old-fashioned doc- 
trine, but when it Is set forth by the 
foremost of British authors through 
tho medium • of an art like Mlsp 
Ad,\ms', one realizes that it is neither 
old-fashioned or of any fashion, but 
just an unalterablG fact. The story 
Is one that is brimful of human na- 
ture. In the company, that is to bo 
seen surrounding Miss Adams are 
Arthur Byrow, . . Liumsdon. Hare, R. 
'Peyton Carter, David TOrrenoo, Fred. 
Tyler',' W. H. Ollmore, AVallaco Jack- 
son, J. L." Carhart, Miss Folllott 
Paget, Miss lillllas WaJdegrave and 
Miss L.illlan Spencer. 

May Riibsrts 

May Roberts and her company open 
a week'.s engagement at. the Victoria 
Theatre oh Monday next. Miss Rob- 
erts comes heading an extremely 
clever comi)imy and also comes with 
the highest recommendations from 
other cities. 

Dm-lng this engagement "The Ad- | 
ventureas" will bo produced Monday ' 
and Tuesday; "The Grass Widow, a 
comedy, jWcdnesday 'and Thursday, 
und "The Judge and the Girl" 'Friday 
and Saturday. During this engage- 
ment Miss Roberts will have the op- 
Iiortunlty to denionatrato her wonder- 
ful versatility, for "The Adventuress" 
Is an extremely emotional part to 
portray, whereas "The Grass Widow" 
and "The Judge and tho Girl" are of 
a lighter nature, both being comedies. 

Pantages Theatre 

The natural cuteness, coupled with 
their extraordinary cleverness asslpg- 
ers, dancers and all-round jontertaln- 
ers, makes the Anderson children u 
dollshtful feature for tho little folks, 
attending Pantages this week. "Mis- 
clilevouB Bob," as presented by the 
Anderson four. Is a" clean, wholesome 
comedy, especially suited to a Juvenile 
audience, and the 10-cent niatlnco.s 
for children arc attracting large num- 
bers of them at each afternoon per- 
formances. 

Shane and Klntf, America's funniest 
Hebrew comedians, will positively ap- 
pear In. this theatre next week. This 
means one loud l,png spasm of con- 
tinuous laughter. , 

Now Grand Tlioatro 

R'lvos, the aoubretto and dancer nt 
tho Grand, never fulls to prove a draw 
to local audiences. This performer 
has become the talk of the town on 
account of tho versatility and sur- 
prise of tho act. The Grand this week 
has a strong bill offering also, Mctn 
and Metz, tho duetl.sta and soloists, 
Helen Stuart, as "I'olly Wiggles In 
Society," ''in which she is a success, 
Willard and Bond in the "Battle of 
Bunco Hill," and Mabol Mooree in her 
demonstration of a blctlc devolo|)nient 
and trapeze work. Thomas J. Price 
sings an acce])tablo song, and thei-e 
are several hundred feet of the UOSt 
hilarious moving pictures.

MAJESTIC' tHEATRE 

Friday and Saturday 

"A Case of Identity "—A detective 
story handled by the wonderful detec- 
tive Hogarth. The mystery begins 
when Hogarth rece(,ves a call from a 
foreigner, who, biing' unable to speak 
English, starts to write his business, 
and drops ' to tho lloor dead before 
finishing. There is no clue upon the 
man, save the tailor's mark on his 
overcoat, but for a mind like Ho- 
garth's that is enough. Finding tho 
tailor, he learns the name of the my- 
sterious stranger. He is mystified 
when the next day's paper announces 
that the man whom he saw lying 
dead on the floor Is to sail with his 
daugliter for Europe at noon. I'.elng 
a man of decision as well as Intuition, 
Hogarth makes a quick dash for the 
boat, and flnda himself a fellow-pas- 
senger of the ' man who Is apparently 
the double .of, his ^mysterious caller, 
und the girl, who Is supposed to be 
his daughter.' 'He 'soon finds that 
there Is a love story, for one of the 
deck hands on the liner exchanges 
notes and signals with the girl, and 
Hogarth soon learns that the man 
Is her fiancee in disguise. He con- 
trives to enter the' stateroom of the 
glri'a supposed father, and there finds 
evidence that the man Is In the em- 
ploy of an unscrupulous prince Who 
Intend.s to force the girl into marriage, 
and also that the man's power over 
the girl cornea from a focgcd note 
purporting to be from her leather, of

Hogarth convince? the girl of the ter- 
rible danger she is in, and of his pow- 
er to save her, and how he confronts 
the Mar(iuis, ;ind after a desperate 
struggle succeeds In taking hlni into 
custody, makes a thrilling and effec- 
tive climax to an Intensely fascinating 
story. There i.s a quality to this pic- 
ture difficult to dcflne, yet plainly ap- 
parent to every one wlio sees it. 

" Three- Fingered Jack" — -X heart 
story in which tIU),:.love of Three- 
Fingered Jack Xoir S^, Salvation Army 



lassie is ^e making of hira. It Is one 
of those pretty, 'domestic .bits ' which 
carry a charm that makes them irre- 
sistible. Jack Is the product of the 
slums, a goodhearted boy when le£^ 
alone, but a thiot through force of 
environment. He is loafing in one of 
tho cheap dives In the poor quarter, 
when a more energetic companion 
proposes an enterprise of burglary and 
Jack consents. The robbery la suc- 
cessful, tho money being abstracted 
from the desk by means of pick-locks, 
which leave no trace of the crime. The 
day following, the Army girl visits the 
scene of tho robbery on a collection 
trip, and through circumstances is ac- 
cused of the theft. She has seen the 
Imprint of Jack's hand upon the blot- 
ter on the table, and when she is per- 
mitted to go, she hurried to the dive, 
taxing Jack with tho robbery. He ad- 
mits his guilt, makes confession and 
restitution, und in response to Lily s 
plea, the charge is not pressed. Jack 
Is to be given a chance to make u 
man of himself. 

Then there is a 1000 feet Blograph 
Comedy of Incidents. Jake, a young 
country lout, comes Into possession of 
a ladder, and had some fun getting 
peoplo up a tree and removing the 
ladder so they have to stay. This 
trick ho repeats several times, and 
what he gets when they finally catch 
him must be seen to be apiireclated.'^

There is much In these words for 
CaiiuOlan inothers to think about. U' 
there la a iiosslblllty that some day 
Great Britain shall be Involved in a 
great striiggle are we to oxi)eot thiit 
Canada with her fertile fields and 
other great natural resources, her 
wealthy cities and her great public 
worlis, which make the country part 
of the great highway botweeii the 
Kast anil M'eal, shall be secure from 
attack'.' It our land should bo invail- 
ed what people worthy to lay the 
foundations of ti nation would be 
willing to cast upon others the 'Diir- 
dcn of defence'.' Yet wl'.cre are our 
soldiers to come from, who Is to de- 
fend lis. If our children are taught 
that a man's duly to socletj- la ful- 
filled when he makes a li\'lng or it 
ffirtuiio for himself and tor his fam- 
ily'.' 

In this greal frontier province let 
lis while taking ])os;'essloii of tlie 
riches oi' the land, teatdi our boys that 
now. its through all the ages, the men 
of the mountains should be strong and 
brnve and free. It la In our time that 
the character of the people of wliat 
must bo a great state Is belnB form- 
ed. ' Future generations will build 
upon tlie foundation now laid, but Its 
strength or Its weakness will remain. 
Does It become women then to waste i 
tlieir lives In selfish ease or siiond 
their energies- In the petty Jealousies 
tiiul the Ignoble strife for place ami 
position which too often make up the 
lives of the devotees ot what luis been 
nilscallod "society." There Is work 
which none but women can do In our 
in-ovince. and In our country, and it 
calls for broad minds, warm hearts 
and clear Intellects. The duty i)t thu 
hour seems to be, to follow the ex- 
ample of our sisters in Nova Scotia 
and forward by every means In our 
power, the movement which will make 
of every boy In our aohoola a man 
ready and able. Should duty call, to 
defend bls country and his home. 

"The fact that certain books have 
to be taken In the literary course In 
the schools makes them (girls) bate 
these books, and .tny book that savors 
in tlie least of those compulsory sub- 
jects is taliooed ' forever." This Is 
the statement of a lady who Is in 
cliarge of the department of the pub- 
lic libriiry of Cincinnati devoted lo 
girls. In [lassing, it is worth while 
asking if there ought to be any such 
deiiarcmenf.' Why may not boys 
and girls he fi-ee to read the saliie 
books If they choose to do so'.' \Vliat 
healthy girl does not enjoy the stories 
in thi; "Hoys' Own Annual'".' And 
there jire boys who would be none 
the worse for retiding .\li-s. Alcott's 
books. l!ul that is not the llrst 
thouglit thai comes to one on retiding 
the sentence ipioted. What sort of 
teaching Is it that, creates a distaste 
for the works of the great Jil.-igllsli 
writers'.' If a llleratiire teacher iioca 
not iiKike the puidls of his or her 
class eiiger lo read other books by the 
author whose woVj,t. .forma the te.\t for 
the lesaona of the term, then either 
the' suijject .shouftl be abandoned or 
the teacher 'dismissed. That teach- 
ing of Ulteraturd"" which luis for its 
chief alni, the making of a high per- 
centage of piarka,,at examinations Is 
a crime, against the pupils and a de- 
stroyer br „truo' cuitiire. . Far better 
a boQlj, should be read Cor the love of 
it, even Jf iftany ;bf Its beauties are 
overlooked and ^ume of. Its trutbif 
not understood, tjian thlit Its study 
shotUd become a hated drudgery. It 
is to be hoped that the experience of 
I'incliiiiatI Is exceptional, ulthough 
tiiere is reason to fear that the ex- 
amination syateiii is robbing the 
teiiciiers, not only of literature but of 
other subjects, of that power and en- 
thusiasm and freedom which make 
study under their guida.ice a delight.

healing first came lo a young school 
teacher mimed liJllzabeth lilackwell, 
who w;is helping her widowed motlier 
to support a family of nine children. 
When she told the doctors with whom 
she came In conlacl of her desire to 
study their profession thc.\- all con- 
cedetl tliat the idea was a good one 
but that It would be Impossible to 
ticcomiiiish it. r.ut -Miss lliackwell 
was gitled with niiire than the share 
of iierslstenee with wliieli women are 
credili-'d. The IJoslon "Woman's Jour- 
nal" tells how she iiccoinplislied her 
jiuriiose. 

"At tlie ;igc of twenty- four Miss 
Jilackwell secured a jiosltion in ;i 
school, the iirinclpal of which had 
prevloiisl.x' been a doctor, and slu^ 
studied privatel.v witli lilm l:i Ihe in- 
tervals of teaching. l..ater, Ur. 
Samuel II. Dickson, a iirofcssor in the 
Medical College of Charleston, H. C, 
obtained her a posltiqn ,«s music 
teacher In a fashionable boarding 
school in that city, and himself di- 
rected the medical studies that she 
carried on In her spare hours. 

"Miss Blackwell In 1847 went to 
Philadelphia witli her small savings, 
studied •anatoiTiy under Dr. Allen, and 
applied for udinissioii to each ot the 
tour medical colleges of thtit city; 
but In vain. Dr. l-'aiikhiirst, iirofes- 
sor of surgery In the largest college 
in Phlladelphlii, offered to admit her 
to his classes, on condition that she 
would disguise iierself as a man. This 
she refused to do. .Applications to 
the large medical schools of New York 
also i)i-ovlng unsuccessful, she sent 
requests to twelve of tin; country col- 
leges, incluillng Geneva ITnlversity 
(now tloljtirl College). Geneva con- 
sented. Dr. .Steiihen Snillh, who wa.^ 
a member of that year's medical class 
;it Geneva, published some years ago 
an account of the matter. lie says 
the faculty did not wish to receive 
her, and they referred the riuestioii to 
the class, with the iiro\-iso thai if a 
single studenl objected, she sliniild not 
be admitted. The class consisted of 
about one hundred and llfty men, who 
have the reputation of having been 
disturbers of the neighborhood. 

"Of MiKabcth Blnckwell's applica- 
tion, Dr. Smith s4ys I , 'The, whole af- 
fair aaaumed ^the njoat'''Iudlcroijs ' da- 
pect to the claasi^nd'' the annouhcfc- 
ment was received with the most up- 
roarious demonstrations of favor, A 
meeting Avns called ' for the evening, 
which was attended by ^every .member. 
The resolullon npprovlng.;tllie,i,'adnil8- 
slon of the lady was suBtalned by a 
number of tlio most extravtiRiint 
speeches, whiell wore enthusiastical- 
ly cheered. The vote was finally tak- 
en with what setnni'd to be one unani- 
mous yell, "Yetil" Wlien the negii- 
tlee vote was called, a single volix' 
was heard uttering a timid "Ko!" A 



general rush was ina.de for the cor- 
ner of the room which emitted tlio 
voice, and the recalcitrant member 
was only too glad to acknowledge his 
error, and record his vote In the aC- 
llrmatlve." ,, , 

"The following resolutlon'twns 'pass- 
ed by the stiidcnts: 'Resolved, ■ that' 
one ot the radical principles ot a Re- 
publIoan'G6vernmerit Is the universal 
education of both sexes; that to every 
branch of sclcnliflc ediication the 
door should be open equally to till; 
tli.-it the application of Kll;!abplh

class meets our entire approbation;

gret her' attendance at this 'Institu- 
tion.' 

"They keiH their word, in so f.ar iis 
outward observance of hiw imd order 
was concerned, at least, and when 
Miss Blackwell graduated at the head 
of her class, they oil agreed that 'our 
lOllzabeth" was 'a great girl.' 

".MI Ihn surrounding country turn- 
ed out to .see her take her degree. 
Dr. Webster, the professor ot anato- 
my, wanted her to march in with the 
other students in procession, but she 
refused llatly on the ground that it 
would not be 'ladylike.' Her diploma 
was handed to her with the highest 
encomiums, to which she made a mod- 
est reply."

Court of Appeal 

Re Xorth Arm Lumber Compaii.s',

of the creditors of the company was 
held at which a large number voted 
for the dlscontinuiinco of cerlahi ac- 
tions pending for tho recovery of as- 
sets of the company. One Heatli, a 
creditor of the company, applied to 
.Morrison, J., for llbert.v to carry on 
the jiroceedlngH at Ills own expense. 
Objection was taken on return of the 
suinmona that Heath had not entered 
nn appearance in accordance with tho 
wlnrling-up rules, and the objection 
was sustained; hence the appeal. 

Held, per Macdonald, C. ,1. A., and 
Galllher, J. A. (the latter dubitante) 
(Irving, J. A., dlssentlente), that Mor- 
rison, .J., had placed a wrong con- 
struction on Rule 66 of the 'VVlndlng- 
tip Rules, and that such rule -did not 
prevent a creditor of a company In 
the circumstances here from Initiating 
such proceedings on his own account.

The agreement did not contain an.v

sell tho property upon non-payment. 
Plaintiff made the $400 cash payment, 
and at once registered his agreement

the property (without Clark's knowl- 
edge) and made a ro'ugh measure- 
ment of it; and the next day went to

^Various Local Athletic Clubs 

Enthusiastic Over Summer 
Aquatics and a Provincial 
League Is Mooted 



.■'Prospects are extremely bright at 
Jhe pr^esent tUne for all sort? ,oC aqua- 
tic sporla" during the summer season. 

'It la probable that there will be 
formed In the city a water polo league 
open tor all teams in the vicinity c6m- 
posed ot amateur players. 

i The ,rnatter is now yiider dLsiuugslon 

'hy the various fsportiiiK orffaiiiiiatioiiH 
of the city, and Is being boosted in 
particular by Ian St. Clair, the physi- 
cal Instructor of the public schools. 
During the last week Mr. St. CliUr has 
liad conferences with the Y. M. C. A. 
BWlmmlng club, and mot all those In- 
terested in aquatics belonKing to the 
J.'B.A.A. Hast Friday evening, when 
the matter of forming a swimming 
club In connection with the Bays was 

.'B^ne Into, 

' Very Enthusiastic 

Mr. St. Clair, who first mooted the 
Idea of a polo league, Is very enthu- 
siastic over its success, and to that 
end he has offered his services to sev- 
eral clubs as a teacher of swimming 
and general aquatics. In this line he 
has had much experience, as he has 
taught swimming to the pupils of the 
public schools each summer [or the 
past several years, and besides this lie 
himself was a swimmer of note in his 
earlier days. 

Teams representing the Garrison, 
North Ward, Y.M.C.A., J.D.A.A. and 
from His Majesty's ships In Esqui- 
malt have been asked to join the league 
and if teams can be got together by 
them they will each enter. An invi- 
tation is extended to all other clubs, 
who may wish to enter, to send tlieir 
names in to Sir. Ian St. Clair. 

The Y.M.C.A., in any case, will i..ive 
Its team ready. Besides the dally 
swimming practices which are being 
held at the camp at the Gorge each 
morning and evening, Tuesday and 
Thursday nights are set apart tor in- 
struction and practice in water polo 
The Y.M.C.A. has excellent material, 
for a fast team, and the thirty mem- 
bers .of the swimming camp up the 
Qoxst© ' include not only -several water 
Stars, but eyery member has the re- 
putation of being able to handle him- 
self well in the briny. 

Ernie Crompton, who showed up so 
well' In' the provincial swimming meet 
last summer, is captain of the polo 
team this year,' and Fred Carne has 
been elected vice-captain and secre- 
tary. 

In conversation yesterday afternoon 
the latter waxed enthusiastic over the 
ieamvfor this year and their prospects 
of forming a good league. 

"Yes, the prospects are very bright 
for a good season in water jjolo this 
summer," Fred said yesterday. "Thi: 
league Is now being formed, and with 
four or nvo teani.4 enti^red, the I'.-ice 
which will ensue will bo full of Inter- 
est, as each one of the clubs which 
have been approached on the subject 
can furnish a strong team. 

"As regards our own team, we have 
some excolent material and the boys 
are quickly catching on to the fine 
points of the game. Wo are making 
arrangements to play several exhibi- 
tion games In front of the Gorije jjark, 
so that the public can obtain some 
idea of the game. We have Just ord- 
ered new goal posts and nets to be 
used for this purpose. It is more tlian 
likely that a couple of the Vancouver 
polo teams will vlsllt the city this 
summer, and v/hen thi!y come we will 
be well trained up to inert tlu^jn. If 
the league iiropoaltion goes through, it 
Is feasible tiiat a iirovincial cham- 
pionship league may 1)0 formed, and 
in that case water polo will 1)0 well 
boosted here this year, and the result 
Of thby, league will be • watched with 
great'ilnterest." -'

The dtfffcfijtyi'wiiroh" :ls|p& the

ships at ISaquima.'lC is that....tb.o ships 
aro not always in port, and the time 
when they could' jjlay v/ould Imvo tO' 
be arranged accordingly. As far as' 
forming a team, there is ample mater- 
ial ijCady at a moment's notice, and 



Baseball — Victoria v. Spirits 
(Seattle),' at 3.30 o'clock, at the 
Royal Athletic grounds. 

Cricket — Garrison v. Burrard 
(Vancouver), commencing at 
10.30 o'clock, on the AVork Point 
grounds. Victoria v. Nanalmo, 
.at 10.30 o'clock, on the Jubilee 
Ho3pltal grounds. Albion "B" 
v. Strawberry Vale, at 2.80 
o'clock, on ' the. , Beacon Hill 
crease. 

The Rifle — ^Regular shoot under 
the auspices of the Fifth Regi- 
ment association, at the Clover 
Point range. 



tlie men are only too anxious to enter 
Into tlio aport. 

The Garrison, North Ward and J.B. 
A. A. clubs also number among their 
members man.v excellent " water 
babies,' but with the latter there are 
so many lines of sport which are be- 
ing Indulged in this summer, that It 
Is feared that this last comer may 
have to suffer. However, It at all pos- 
sible, the Bays will have a team In the 
water polo league.

VANCOUVER, June IG. — "Bun" 
Clark, the former Tecumseh goaltcnder, 
who was along here last year with the 
Reglna All -stars, arrived in the city 
yesterday and will take his place in 
the net for the Vancouver team in tlie 
game at New Westminster on Satur- 
day. "Bun" is loolcing well and ho 
thinks he will like it here. He was 
busy most of last night and today 
.shaking hands with old acquaintances. 
Clark will make his initial appearance 
in a A'ancouver uniforni at practice 
this evening. 

The Vancouver team to play on Sat- 
urday will l)e selected after practice 
this e\ eniiig. ,3.Ianager Con Jones In- 
tends to try out a number of players 
in the giiine and the lineup will t)e 
much difl'erent from tliat which ap- 
peared last Saturday. "Bun" Clark 
will be ill goal, with Weldy Clarke at 
point, Johnny Howard at coverpoint, 
and Harry Godfrey, Bob Springer and 
Billy West In the defence Hold. Fred 
Paynter will play centre and the homo 
will be made up of "Dude" Sumner, 
Sandy Cowan, Hugh Mcl.<aohlan, Spike 
Hennessy and Arcliie Adamson. 
"Bones" Allen and Harry Pickering 
will take a rest to recover from their 
injuries. 

The Westminster team will also 
j show II number of changes. Cliff 
i .Sijring may not play, While" Gordon 
I Spring may be out again. Hugh Clif- 
ford will get .a chance in the fleld, and 
Ed. Iidngfellow, wljo'. was on the Van- 
couver payroll until a iveek ago, will 
play centre for the world's champions. 
Longfellow I.s not eligible to play In a 
league game iintll Vancouver releases 
him, but lie can play on Saturday, as 
It I.s an cxhihition. Ah a matter of 
fact, liiiu Clarke and Sandy Cowan 
would not be eligible today for Van- 
couver eitiK^r If It was a league game, 
liut they can play Saturday for the 
same reason. 



J.B.A.A. "BlgFour" Sleep at 

Club House to Obtain Early 
Morning Runs — Changes in 
Junior Crew 



About three weeks intervenes before 
the annual N.P.A.A.O. races take place. 
The time is short as well as fleeting 
and those James Bay oarsmen who 
have been selected to represent that 
club In the international championship 
struggles aro taking advantoge ot 
every opportunity to pyt thefl[<aelve8 
Into condition to put up the best light 
that is In them. 

Liiist night members of the "Big 
Four " and W. N. Kennedy, the lad 
who will wear the J.B.A.A. colors in 
the sculling contest, took up their 
quarters at the boat house perman- 
ently. They will sleep there from this 
date forth, making two trips up the 
Gorge and back every day. Dan 
O'SulIlvan, the coach, will accompany 
them on these outings. He will travel 
in a launch within sjieaklng distance 
of the athletes, correct their faults, 
and give them the full advantage of 
his experience. He feels conHdent that 
the Victoria representation at the 
forthcoming competitions will bo wor- 
thy and successful. 

In the assembly of a Junior four the 
(Officials liire not meeting with the 
same smooth sailing. Several of the 
men originally named have been re- 
placed, and now the crew presents an 
entirely changed appearance. It fol- 
lows: SkuBC, stroke; .Summers, 3; 
Chungranes, 2; and Thomas, bow. 

For the doubles entry It is necessary 
to decide between the merits of two 
crows. Messrs, Monck and Ilopgood and 
Messrs. Chungranes and Ncwmarsch 
are the aspirants. They will be 
matched for the iiurpose of deciding 
the Issue. It Is possible that the race 
will take place tonight, although every- 
thing depends on the weather condi- 
tions.

contest in history, yet It Is Incomplete in 
one essential detail, for nobody knows 
, where it Is poing to be fouglit; but that 
' It will not be held in San Francisco or 
elsewhere In California is generally ad- 
mitted. Tex li^ckard, promoter of the 
bout, Is so certain of this that he has de- 
clared his intention of suing Governor 
GlUott and Attorney-General Webb for 
alleged damages siistalnod because of in- 
tervention. 

While no legal stops have been taken 
as yet against any of those concerned, 
the promoter of the Longford-Kaufman 
fisht, slated for Saturday next, Is in no 
bettor case, as he has the published as- 
surances Of the Bttorney-seriora] that of. 
tlolals will file an application for an In- 
junction against the match tomorrow. 
Promoter Blot itoclared bo cannot see 
how his twenty-roimd go can be prevent- 
nil, and says he will hold it as schcdided, 
but his voice lacked conviction when ho 
said It. 

As to the l)lg flKht, Attorney- General 
Webb said today he would not hotlier 
with an application for a temporary re- 
straining order, but would ask for a per- 
manent Injunction. Ho expects to have 
his application on file within a fow days. 
Rickard does not Intend to contest. Ho 
said ho would immediately trt^nsfer the 
match to some other :Btate If the court 
ruled against him." 

Governor aiUott, . whoso letter yester- 
day to tho Attorney-Qonernl created such 
a stir as sportdom h(\s not known since 
Jim Corbott dofented John L. Sullivan, 
arrived from Sacramento today. Ho was 
positive in Oefining his position that the 
fight would be stopped. Ho seemed In- 
different to the opposition aroused, and 
said so. Tho governor eaviio to San 
Francisco to preside over an exposition 
mass meeting, an(J It has been noised 
around that tho .status of tho exposition 
at WnshlnRton had rnuch to do with 
Ids "no fight" order. Sporting writers 
hastened around to hear anytjilng rel- 
ative to the fight that might slip put, 
but they vieTt, dlsjippolnted, for not a 
word concerninff[,'tj. .yras spokeit at .the 
meeting. , , ',' ,' 

Work has been f^tbpped on tho con- 
struction of tho'nr'cna. Tho men were 
not actually laid 'off until today. Rick- 
ard bad llttlo to say tonight; he is 
awaiting developments. If his predic- 
tions hold good ho will ho able to say 
what town gets the fight by tomorrow 
noon. Tho promoters office has been 
flooded all dny with proposals to stage 
the big show, Ileno, Tacoma, Juarez, 
Mexico, and several other places have 
been suggested, and offers of all klpds 
came during the day. " '' 

The eituatloi) tdi)tght Is iiist'. where 
it was last night "'Rloliard Is the only 
man Who has any 'real Inkling 'of what 
Is going to happen; and Rickard won't 
say definitely -what his plans are. 
He Doesn't Care 'Whera 

"I don't care where wo go, so long as 
we fight," declared Jeffries today, as 
he appeared for his training work. Tho 
fighter read a message from Tex Rick- 
ard early today. In which the promoter 
declared that th'o battle would bo held 
In San Francisco 'after all, but failed to 
state why he" thought so. Jeff was in 
high spirits after reading It. 

Any old place suits me," he declarod. 
"Sooner miss the chance to meet Jobn- 
son now, after all tlie trouble I have 
gone to, I'd 1)0X bini In private. I want 
Rickard nnd Gleason to know that I am 
with them in whatpver they do. I wdll 
box In any tow). they select. I think 
square sportint,' men .should stick to 
them to the last." Jeff fools that if 
the fight goes to Nevada all the moun- 
tain climbing he has done will stand 
him In good stead. 'Ho has done a lot 
of work that took him to an elevation 
2,000 feet above sea level, and tho 
Nevada- altitude will not bother him. 
Reno Makos Bid 

RENO, ,\ev., Juno If,.— A commltlon 
appointed at a meeting of business men 
today began prellrninary pl.-ins towards 
"oringing the Jeffries-Johnson fight 
hero. Reno is prepared to make a siili- 
stantlal offer for the fight, and will 
guarantoo al)KoIutc Immunity from In- 
terf erencL'. 

Kloiard Slok of right 

SAX FnANCLSCO, Juno 10.— 'If the 
court grant.s an Injunction T leave for j 
Reno on Sunday morning. ,-.nd will Ini- | 
niodlat olyc'onimpnce tlie erection of an ' 
arena there," .Mr. Rlckarda said. "My I 
attorneys have advised mo not to buric 
the governor and tho attornoy-general. 
but I have agreed to wait until Saturday! 
It Is a bitter pill and a heavy loss, but 
I will take my niodi.clne and keep my 
word to hold the fight, if It is the last 
thing I do." "For once Rickard was 
"fight sick." Ho did not deny it 'While 
not yet ready to announce it, tho pro- 
moter virtually admitted that tho fight 
would take place at Reno.

SAN FRANCISCO, June 16.— News 
comes from Phoenix. Arizona, that Joe 
Gans.the former lightweight champion. 
Is near death from tuberculosis. Gans 
was asked ,to write a story of tho Jef- 
fries-Johnson light and was offered 
liberal terms, but the letter came from' 
Gans'.doqtor eayltw-that; Joe was not 
In a physical icpndltlon to stand the 
Journey. He adds that cbnsurhptlon 
had made rapid strides since Gaha ar- 
rived In Phoenix, and the ollmate"''dld 
lot seem to help the veteran, as he had 
remained too long In Baltimore before 
trying (i tdiaiige. Gans is said to be a 
more shadow of the old lighter.

Splrit.s (Seiuttle) and Victoria meet 
till;.) evenling at ,the 'Royal Athletic 
ball yard. On Saturday afternoon, the 
same teams become locked a second 

time In a nine inning battle. Both 
nuitchos should bo productive of Bomo 
of the prottkst ball local fans havo 
had an oirportnnity of witnessing since 
the season's first match. 

The laiLs, wlio arc coming from the 
Sourid to try the mettle of Wattalot's 
b".ncli are reported to be fast and 
sure. Last year they won twenty-oii 
games, and lost only six. They liavo 
started out on the same path, having 
a string of victories to their credit 
which, from the standpoint of pro- 
spective opponents. Is fearsome to be- 
hold. l'"'ort Warden, a town with a 
si)leiulld nine, went down before the 
Spirits to the tune of 11-0. Wllkeson 
met a similar fate, score ^>-2. Fort 
Flagler, where the ball players are 
the Idols of tlic soldiers, bit the dust 
In a hot match 4-3. In Fort Casey, a 
place where the conditions are much 
the same, the Seattle boys jjlayed 11 
innings, winning with one run. It wua 
the same story at Port Gamble, while 
their most recent performance was tho 
defeat last Sunday of tho Ronton 
team. 

Kelly Coming Again 

With this galaxy of triumjihs at 
their back It is no wonder tiiat the 
Victoria team has been impelled to 
prepare just a little more carefully 
for the week-end games. It is rather 
a striking coincidence that there 
should be on the Si)irit nine two play- 
ers who have been soon here before, 
and whose work has won ilieni a 
place In the hearts of tho fans. First 
there is Kerry, practically the only 
man on the Eller team wlio caused 
any remarlc. He caught for them tcni- 
poraril.v, being a regular member of 
tho Spirit club. His work at that 
jiosltlon Is too fresh In the minds of 
Victorians to re<iulre recall. Then 
there Is Archer, a man who was seen 
ivith one of the first teams wliich 
came here at short stop. Ho Is fast 
in the field. and relial)!e at tho bat. 

Of tho Victoria team there isn't 
much to be said. Probably "Pob" 
Peden ^viU-bo seen in the box. It Is 
either up to him or "Rubo" Stoensoii. 
Robertson will r<>celve. The remainder 
of the nine will be in place as usual. 

George Burnes will referee.

The annual meeting of tho Empress 
Athletic Club was bold In tho club 
rooms last evening, when there was 
a good crov^rd lij attendance. It was 
called for theV purpose 'of- electing di- 
rectors for' the' coming year and 
transacting general business. 

Mr. Smith was chosen to fill the 
chair. He announced that It was tho 
first meeting of tho club which had 
boon hold In tlio now club rooms. lie 
regretted the fact that Mr. Pauline, 
of tho most energetic menibors, and 
alHo on the board of directors was 
going to leave the city on Friday. Tho 
club would be at a great loss to fill 
the position so ah\y carried on l^v 
him. 

Tho members then got down to 
business and elected the following 
members on the board of dlreotora for 
the ensuing year: Messrs, Sharji, 
Smith, Massey, Hall and .Tackson. 
Several sub-comniltlee.s were alyo 
formed to look after tho various 
branches of sport. Football; Messrs. 
Massey and Mathews. Track: Messrs. 
Cliff Carroll, "Plncher" .Martin and 
Clarence McConnell. Boxing: Messrs. 
"Plncher" Martin and Lane. Mr. Fox, 
the general secretary of the club, will 
serve again in that capacity for the 
coming year. 

A caretaker to look after tho prem- 
ls(\s of tho club was also appointed 
and his salary decided upon. 

Secretary Fox presented the finan- 
cial statement of the club for the past 
year, which proved that tho club was 
\\\ good standing and completely out 
of debt. 

It was moved and seconded that a 
letter of thanks be written and for- 
warded to Mr. W. .1. Andori-on for hi;i 
kind donation of $10 to tlie general 
funds of the club. A vote of thanks 
was also carried for the Western J,Io- 
tor company and Its manager Mr. R. 
P. Clark, Cor the privilege which he 
allowed the club of letting them have 
the premises which they occupy free 
of rent for tho first month. The sec- 
retary wa.s instructed to write to the 
company accordingly. 

-Mr. Fox st^lted that the member- 
ship wag rapidly increasing. Ho also 
wished to correct a mistaken imi)res- 
sion which has been in circulation 
in the city about the club to the effect 
that it Is run by and only for the 
members of tho Empress hotel staff. 
This is quite Incorrect. The club is 
In no way connected with the hotel, 
and although all the members of tho 
staff of the hotel belong to It yet tho 
club Is open for members from all 
over the city. At present there aro 
over seventy-five outsido members.

^ Plus again +. Up to the moment that it is exactly right the Semi-ready tailor 
can add to and substract from the garment, and make correcrions until he and his

the proportions of anatomy, and he has the secret of the true art in the craftsmanship. 

^ Semi-rendy Suits can be finished in two hours — and the man who has to wear 
them feels that his suit has been designed and made for him. 

When the Suit is sent home it is shaped right, and the right shape stays, for it is

Mr. Shallcross then asked Mr. Iiaw- 
son regarding the average clause, and 
Mr. Lawson saia that when the rates 
on several buikllngs arc at various 
rates the highest rate Is adopted for 
the average. 

Mr. Shallcross said an avoraso rate 
of the whole was given by Lloyds. 

Mr. .Page stated the fire rate on 
Challoner & Mitchell's building was 
1.B2 per cent. 

Mr. Shallcross asked Jlr. La-\VBon 
what clauses of the statutory condi- 
tions regarding pollolos he considered 
of advantage to the insured and Mr. 
Lawson replied that they were sup- 
posed to be fair to one as the other. 

Could Discriminate. 

Mr. Rounasetoll of Vancouver said 
the board companies carried insur- 
ance throughout tho country and the 
rates were made on tho. general risk 
and It was possible for Lloyds or oth- 
ers to come in , and give one man a 
lower rnto on a selected risk. His 
company had lost heavily at the Fer- 
nio fire, aljout $10,000,000. 

To Mr. Shallcross he said his com- 
panioH would not caro for all risks. 
Sometimes the buslnosH would lie re- 
fused — tlie rate not bi;ing considered 
adequate to tlio risic. lie considered 
companies had a i-iglit to do tliis. The 
sawmill bu.slnPHS had I'fsiilted in mufli j 
loss to his company wiUcli dealt cun- 
siderably in high risks. 

Afternoon Soa^lon 

At. tlio ufternooii session. Tilr. .7. ^V. 
DolJ. I'"ai'rls, a lawyer oC Vancouver, took 
the stand. lie (.'ould nut luidrTstiuKl 
why any tax slnuild b« placed on outside 
ci)nii)anles or their aKents oiHMutinK la 
the province. Tho i/rcivince didn't vr.- 
qulro that money sliouUl bo raised in 
this way. It would have tho effect of 
restricting the Insurance trade. In liKs 
opinion tho commission should not ru- 
couimend that any suoh tax should bo 
imposed. The provincial government 
should not interfere In any way which 
would restrict legitimate trade. 

If protection was wanted by the coiu- 
panios, thoy had not asked tor It. Tho 
theory Wiis that whi'u tho iirovlnce had 
a native industry which was a lient'ilt 
to the comniiinl I y. It shnuld lie "Micour- 
a^ed. The insuranco husiuoss. however, 
did not fall imder this head. It v.as 
not a homo Industry. Tho groat nia- 
.I'orlty of the firms oporatlnK hero wore 
outsUio ('onipanlcs. and 1-ho nuuu-y whlcdi 
(hey earni'il was lujt lavo.-Jt.od in the 
province. No stronger conddniitlon, no 
bolter protected one, existed, than tho 
insurance companies In B. C. He did 
not consider that tho combination was 
In any way an iUcsal one, but the con- 
clusion must be reached that it had un- 
duly lessened the price of rompetitiou. 
All the strong companies In the provliioo 
belonged to the coinhino. .and tiioi-oforo. 
there was practically no conipotl t ion. so 
why was protection necessary? Tlu' 
scope of tho commission, as he read II, 
was to solve the question of why tho 
Insuranco rates In British Columbia and 
throughout the rest of Canada were so 
high. 

Tax Not Excessive 

The tax of one per cent, on the pre- 
miums taken by local compaidos in the 
pro\dnco lie did not consider an lrux>os- 
lllon. It was more or less an Income 
tax, paid by the company, Just .as an In- 
dlvldiuil had to pay. In tho question of 
placing a tax on a foreign agent or com- 
pany it was never sugfiested that a tax 
should bo placed on a man v;ho lived 
hero yet proposed to do his business 
elsewhere. The principle was the same 
as people having to pay customs--, duty 
on Imported goods. The idea of appeal- 
ing to the'natlonal .sense by enuallzlng 
matters In the Imposition of a 'fax on 
outside companies ■would only mean that 
the tax proposed would fall on the pre- 
mium payor, as there was little doubt 
that the companies would recouii in 
some \\'ny. Mr. BodwoU had boon vori' 
scdlcltous of tho foolish business man 
U'hc) ^vont outside to carry nn his affairs. 
Then ho also had ;i rlKht about faco 
argument, for he said tluu the nmn go- 
ing outside was getting a good thing, 
and he ought to bo taxed. 

Chairman liOnnle hero suggested that 
Mr. Fnrrls had offered the; commission 
no solution of the difficulty of gcttlniT 
Insurers to do business xyith the home 
companies. 

In reply Mr. Parrls said that thinprs 
should be.^left as th^y are. The feeling 
on tho part of the people was that when 
the proposed act became law It -would bo 
claimed that protection had been Insti- 
tuted. But then, It would be pointed out 
tlmt it was a protection which did not 
protect, ami tho natural cnn.seqxionci* 
wotdd be that the tax on outside coui- 
I)anlos would bo r.-dsed from time to tlnu> 

ITo Eoflectlons Intondod 

Mr. J. .1. ShalU'ross thou took tho 
stand, and In opcuiluK alluded to tbo fact 
that in all the ovld(-nco adihicod luuhltiK 
had l)oen said refjootlng on Iho honor of 
the aKonts or roniiianios dolni,' business 
In the pi-ovlnco. It was rem.'irkablo, 
however, that not a single man from 
among the agents are companies under 
<llscuBsIon had come fonvard in their do- 
fence. 

Mr. Bodwell had made the extraordin- 
ary charge that 60 per cent, of fire 
losses wore due to Incendiarism. Thoi-e 
was no evidence whatsoever to subsi.-m- 
tlate this statement. It was an easy 
matter to nny that the cause of a flie 
could not be explained, but It was tinite 
a different thing to assign it to rrlinlnal 
Intent. The rates charged wore not 
based on a scientific jjrlneiple. b\it on ii( 
very .arbitrary principle. 'I'lioy \v<>i-e eer- 
talnly not b.asod on anything Ih.-it the 
man In the sti eel could iimlerst and. ,N'o- 
thlng which caiiio up In the evidence 
liad shown that the ratos In effect wore 
not arbitrary. 

Mr. Bod well had argued that tho fho 
Insurance was a local business.. Eighty 
eight per cent, of the business of Can- 
ada was placed with outside companies. 
The Insurance companies had refused to 
give the Information ns to what profits 
wore being made .In this province. 

Chairman Lonnle: "What point could 
you moke out of this Information?" 

Mr. Shallcross, In reply, said that it 
would bo possible to arrive at tho rela- 
tion between the capitals of the differ- 
ent companies and the amntint of In- 
sur.-iuco carried. I'rneeedlng nn tlils 
theme, ho dwelt on tho losses .sustained 
by a number of corupanlos In tho .'-^an 
l'"r;nK-lsco confl.-igratlon. wlior(' the 
amount of Insuranco carried excoodeil 
some of the capitals of tho crimiianlos In- 
volved, In his opinion, tlio public w;is 
entitled to know tho caiiltals and lo- 
sorves of tho different companies with 
vhlch business was contracted. 

"Would that affect the amount of their 
deposit?" asked Chairman Lennte. 

Ileplyins, Mr. Shallcross said that ho 
considered the idea of a deposit as a 
guarantee was a fallacious one. The 
connnlsslon was faced by nn organiza- 
tion which controlled ninety per cent, of 
tlio Insurance In Canada. 

Mr. HodwoU here Interjected, remark- 
ing that tliOHO coniiiaiiles hr.d to conform 
to the Dominion Insurance Act. Mr. 
Phallcross, however, pointed -out tluit 
this was not tho case unless they had 
Doinlidon liconses. nrltisii Coluniljhi 
hud llie-po.Wor to assist oonimorcial men 
to get fire insurance at lower r.itos than 
those at present in force. Hut a barrier 
which. might exclude colnpanies from 
oporntlng hero should not bo placed 
around the province.

addition to the ordinary tax a very bad 
l)ilnelido would bo established. 

"How is It iio.->siblo to got at thoni?" 
aslcod Clialruian Lonnle. 

"There is no necessity to get at them." 
was tho reply. The . principle, according 
to tho witness, had no Jiistification In 
natural Juslloo. .N'o one could galnnay 
Ills light lo go over to Seattle anil pur- 
oliaso h;irdware, and a local hardwaro 
firm wmild have no remedy. 

"My answer to that," said Chairman 
Lonnle. "is tliat Insurance is not a 
t railo." 

"Perhaps not," said Mr. Shallcross: 
"but It Is a s|)oeios of hanking, anxl the 
lU'lnclpie tu'oiiosod in connection with It 
is n new and extraordinary one." 

(.'halrm.'in Lennie pointed out that tho 
system liad been tried and had' been 
found to work In the States. In answer, 
Mr. Shallcross said that .there . tho la- 
's iirancio. companies were sq.jjowerful that 
thoy'-ha^ been oWe to.-pprifrpl legislation. 
Why-lio considered 'jthe .'ayBtprri- an im- 
proper ono was becBuso.li had never been 
applied before In. this prov.lnce or In any 
part of Canada 'to any form' of huslneas 
except Insurance. 

The i)rofltH of Insuranco companies 
v.-oro so largo that tbo tax of one i>er 
cent, would hardly ho felt. As far as 
niiinielpal l.-ixes weri! concerned, no case 
had been made out why InHur.ance com- 
panlen cliould gixy anytliliig more than 



any other business man jiald to do bu.si-

Mr. .Shallcross wiis still on tho stand

STEAMER'S ARRIV'E 

'OFF CAPE NOME 



Victorio. and Umatilla Discharging 
Cargoes on tho Ice Off Northern 
Port. 



The .steamer 'Victoria, of the Alus- 
l(a Steamship Company, arrived oiT 
Cape Nome last Sunday from Seattle, 
and tho UmatlUa got In on Monday 
from San Franels(50. Neither vessel 
sustained damage In making its way 
through the loe. A cable from Cape 
Nome, delayed - in transmission, has 
been received by J, J.\Sessnon & Co,, 
stating that both the port and road- 
stead wore covered with Ice and that 
tho Victoria wns discharging into 
barges which had been forced tlirough 
Bir.all loads out to the ship. Tlio dis- 
charge of the Victoria' was expected 
to he completed last night. 

St. Mlcliaol was reported to bo fro- 
zen solid still, and thoy estimated 
that tho earliest at which they could 
expect to -discharge any cargo at St, 



MIchoal would bo Juno 21. As tho 
bulk of the cargo of both tho Victoria 
and the Umatilla was destined for 
up river, this will further delay tho 
return of tho two steamers. 

The steamer Senator was reported 
passing tlirough Unlnmk Pass last 
Sunday, and she has also probably 
reached Cape Nome. 

The remainder of tho early fleet out 
of Seattle for Nome and Norton 
Sound, the Edith, Olympla, Tampleo 
and St. Helens, all freighters with tho 
exco|itlon ot the Olympla, which car- 
ries second-class passengers In addi- 
tion to a limited number of first-class, 
are all now due to bo off Nome, hut 
as all of them -.'are chlelly burdened

(Continued from Page 8.) 



plaintiff never replied to Monk's lot-

After the sale to Bullen, Clark ap- 
plied to the registrar-general of titles 
(defendant Wootton) under the pro- 
visions of sec. 123 of the Land Re- 
gistry Act, cap. 23. statutes of B. C, 
190C, to cancel the registration of Iho 
plaintiff's agreement on the ground

whether time wr.s of the <'ns;i-nce

of his covenant to pay the • moneys 
duo, etc. By this section such can- 
cellation would cause the plaintiff's 
agreement and his estate* in the land 
"to cease and determine.' On the 3rd 
of March, 1910, the registrar duly 
gave the plaintiff the thirty day no- 
tice required hj sec. )_.'., .i

Before Lampman, Co. .T. 

Bull V. Victoria and .Sidney Railway 
Co.: — This was an action to recovL-r 
diniages, $37a, ilif v.-ilui.^ of a hor.so 
killed and tho breaking u]) of a wa;;on 
through collision witli a train of tae 
defendant company at one of thjir 
li;vel crossings on tlie Saanich road 
last December. it was alleged by th 



section :i !, Land Registry Act, pro- j j,,,^!,^,^. j^o 
vides that a notice sent through tho | .-^^ required by the statute, bc- 

ir.all shall bo deemed to have been | f pro coming to the crossing, nor was 



In 1810 hereafter referred to, made no 
further payments. 

On the 21st April, 1908, Clark wrote 
the plaintiff . asking for a payment, 
and on 14th May, 1908, plaintiff re- 
plied that he coula do nothing Just 
then, and after- a couple of other let-, 
tors, on 15th July, 1908, Clark»-wroto 
giving platntilT notice of his intention' 
to sell, unless a payment .was' made. 

The plaintlfl* never repHetf to this 
letter, .and Clark made. )?fforts to sell- 
the property, ...by ' lietlngt It with real 
estate' ageats idnfl byVadvertlslng It in 
newspaper?, btit ho wfis -jiiisuccesaful. 
until February, 1910, when he' sold to 
Mr. Bullen for $1.BOO. 

In June, 1009, the plaintiff had wrltr': 
ton to a friend in Victoria ■ named 
Monk, asking him'- to see- Clark or to 
try. and sell -the lots. Monk sa-w Clark; 
who made him a' proposition to extend 
the time on interest being- paid. This 
Monk wrote to tho plaintiff, but tho 



received within luurieeii du 
elusive of tlie day of posting, and Mr. 
Wootton says ay neither the i>lainlll'f 
nor aiiyono on his behalf liad, -within 
the thirty days, ai)iiroached him, lio 
presumes he would at the oxpirution 
of tho additional fourteen (Lays have 
cancelled the .1i,'re('nieni liad ho not 
been restrained by an interim injunc- 
tion herein, notwithstanding the fact 
that he had received notice from 
Messrs. Crease I'i; Crease that they 
had )iaid into tho Royal Bank on the 
•Ith of Aijrll, 1910, the amount due by 
tho idaiiitllT imder tho agreement, 
which i)rovi(led for the iiaymeiit of 
nioney.s in this way. 

Tlie.se moneys were put to Clark'j) 
credit, but were promptly returned by 
lilni to tho plaintiff. 

ICxcopt as before stated tho plaintiff 
fnild no attention to Clark or his obll- 
gjitioii.s under tho agreement until tho 
fith of April, 1910, when he tolegrapli 
ed him to know If' Pomberton & Bon 
had paid him tho balance due; fur on 
the 3l8t of March Pemberton & Son 
had, owing to a sudden rlso in real 
estate In Esquimau district, affected 
a sale of tho property for $2,500, and 
owing to the manipulation of their 
listing cards by Monk (who wao In 
their employ) acting for tho jilalntlff, 
had reported tho sale to plaintiff in- 
stead of to Clark, who had originally 
listed It \y.lth,thera.-. ■' . V 

The terms of the sale > did not pro- 
vide; cash enough' to 'P9.y- the amount 
due Clark, and'- this-was! not arranged 
until about the ith of April;, Tvhen tho 
money was paid Into the:, bank, and on 
5th of April, plaintiff brokeyhls long 
silence and telegraphed." Clark: 
. "Wire If Pemberton :;hMi;tmld you; 
if not accept money from" Monk," hut 
It was too late for him to do anything, 
he had sold In February," the matter 
-was put into the hands of the soli- 
citors and resulted in , these- proceed- 
ings.- , \,::,.;::/J5j;/i^;',JS 

Gregory, J. . dismissed* the; action on 
the ground, among others, that the 
plaintifC's delay and conduct generally 



tho whistle bluwii. The evidence oi 
this iioliit wa.s conflicting. On the part 
of the defendant eomi)any, it was con- 
ti^nded that the driver of the wagon 
was guilty of contributory negligence, 
and that ho was either drunk or asleep, 
'i'ho Jury found for plalntlft In the full 
amount claimed, and that there was no 
contributory negligence.

Hygienic Conditions 
Vet In considering tho roUxtloiis of 
the cost of labor to the rate of wages, 
it should not be iorgotton that 'tho 
produelion of the minor Is d(^terinlned 
by other factors than ills own wllllii!;- 
noSS and (tn(n-gy and strength and 
skill. .I'ho hygienic eondltiona under 
which he works ,'ind lives aro an im- 
portant factoi-. 'J'ho ventilation of tho 
mines, tho ntniosphero Jn which ho 
works, its purity and temperature and 
dryness, and the comfort and healthi- 
ness of his homo will greatly affect 
his ofilclency. It is difflcult to estimate 
tho cost of such things as these, but 
certainly they have a. consldern.ble 
economic vnluo. And cqufilly Important 
Is tho arrangement and,^^-.dlreo,tlon.,6r 
his labour, so as .to nittkiaJ'thoVbe^t of 
It. ThU depends oh the knowledge and 



capacity and foresight of the manage- 
havlng been so unreasonable, ,lt deemed mont. ■ - ■ 



Natural Conditions 

Tho natural conditions, the depth, 
hardness and thickness of the coal 
seams, tho natwe Of the root and floor, 
the prevalence ,of water .or gas, and 
so o:i.— are conditions which cannot 
be altered In themselves, but which 
aiTord tho test Of th.e Skill and effi- 
ciency of the management and the 
workmen. In competing collieries, the 
dlffarence ibetween .thepi In natural 
conditions is limited by the selling 
luicc. Sooner w later a .colliery must 
be closed, where the nattiral difflcul- 
ties ore so great that tho average 
working cost ejfceeds the average sell- 
ing price. Human efflelency.ls the vari- 
able factor which determines tlie 
relative cost of working, and which 
affords most scope for improvement. 
Tho best test of efflciency, assuming 
that tho natural conditions ore simi- 
lar, ig the production per man iier 
hour worked. It Is clear, however, that 
the cost of labor deijcuda not only on 
tin- i)roductlon per man, but also on 
I lie us ages ho is ]jaid. Tho higher the 
wages (or a given iiroductlon, the 
greater will be the cost. Of the actual 
cost of production, exclusive - of re- 
serve for depreciation and remunera- 
tion to capital, the proportionate cost 
of labor has been found to be 75 per 
cent. 

Capable Management 

The practical le.«!son to bo gathered 
fi-oin tills fact is that labor, being a 
most expensive article, should be care- 
fully coiisldered and employed as 
e90nomlcallY as ppsslible. Much may be 
done, eBpeolally In the design and lay- 
ing out of new collieries, and also In 
the working of them. In...d eclding on 
the best machinery and plant not only 
the first cost, and cost of maintenance 
need consideration) but also how they 
wUJ afltoct the cost of labor, In the or- 
ganization of labpr the ide&l to be 
aimed ^t is that every inan should bo 
employed to the best advan^;age,. and 
that no man's" time -noir energy should 
bo wasted. This, affopds gre£i|. scope 
for able managethent, In. the .adoption 
of the best labor-saving appliances, In 
the concentration of the workings, in 
the right apportionment of the work, 
and in the dtilly and hourly super- 
vision of and control of tho workmen. 
The success of a colliery depends on 
tho joint and willing efforts of all con- 
cerned whether employers or em- 
ployed. • ■ ■

riod of productivity, while he mdst at

That the prospectors In tho vicin- 
ity of Stewart, at tho head o£ Port- 
land Canal, iire looUinK for placer 
diggings In consequence of tho recent 
finds of a great reef of free milling 
ore which has been traced for twenty 
miles, is the news brought by the 
steamer Vadso, of tho Boscowltz 
steamshlj) company which reached 
port ealy yesterday morning from 
Stewart, Prince Rupert, Nans and 
other Northern British Columbia ports 
This big reef a honeycombed body, 
which carries free milling gold In 
good values, Is the source from which 
comes the rough gold found in many 
of the streams of the district in the 
opinion of mining men, and many 
prospector.^ are now scouring the 
creeks with pans seeking to locate 
tho placer they believe to lie in the 
northern dlstrlst. C. M. Delgrove 
and Louis Apderson, locators of the 
big reef, the finding of which has 
caused the biggest excitement in 
Portland canal since tho discovery of 
the camp, stated that they consider- 
ed the reef found by tliem tho source 
from which, tho streams obtain their 
gold and which has supplied gold to 
the ricli Unak river and nearby Alas- 
liiin oreok.s where placer diggings are 
Ijeing worked.

tho greatest thing I have ever seen, 
and I have prcspccted In many local- 
ities. It is almost unbelievable. A 
tlioiisand stamps could bo worked for 
a hundred years on the ground we 
traversed and scarcely mark the roof 
for it is many miles in extent, and 
in places more than 2,000 feet high 
as I judge. It Is more than a moun- 
tain of ore — an entire range of it in 
fact. Groat porphyry dikes extend 
through the reef and between them 
lies the ore in places 30 to 1,000 feet 
wide. It Is my opinion the t reef will 
eventually bo traced on, down tho 
canal and it will prove the greatest 
mineral discovery ever made." 

The discoverers are busy getting a 
new outllt and sending out .. men to 
make more locutions, also a force to 
make a largo camp on their own 
group. I'^om Stewart tho peojile are 
heading for Ward's Pass which can 
easily bo made in a day, then it is 

but. a day's trip to the reef with a nnAniiii/B i r-xi>r./« 
place to atop en route at tho camp of |VlAI\IUKA LEAVES 

tho Moonlight company. 

The few promoters nOW in camp 
have sent their experts to the discov- 
ery and already some reports which 
are very favorable are coming back 
and the promoters are bidding right 
and left for the locations which arc 
most acceasablo at this time. It is 
understood that several companies are 
already In course of formation having 
secured options on the orginivl loca- 
tions, The reef apj)oals particularly 
to the mining exports now In camp 
not only because of the fact that it is 
easily reached but on account of tho 
fact that it can bo easily and, cheaply 
warked by stamp nrillls. ' Despite tho 
difficulties of communication mining 
men are chartering launches tugs and 
even sending men out in sailboats to 
Port Simpson to get Into communica- 
tion with their backers Ijy wire. 

Tony Bernard, a prospector who has 
been working at the head of Bear 

river, returned to Stewart shortly bo- , o.^ .^...i.

The nrat sensation of the cricket sea- 
son wus provided when Kent, the cham- 
pion county, met with a severe defeat 
at Oxford, the dark blues winning by 
eight wloltets, Kent led by 20 runs 
on their first Innings, hut could only 
make 70 at their second attempt, Le

Bouchard to IVIeet Ljungstrom 

Thero are prospects of a match or 
matches between Bouchard, the fa- 
mous French iiedestrlan, and I^jtinR- 
stroni, the Swede, who has won from 
the best of the world's professional 
runners on this side. Ilouchard has 
readll\- acceiiled tcrins for a series of 
matches over 10, IL', 15, and 20 miles, 
and even Is pre|)ared to go the full 
marathon distance. Bouchard Is also 
anxious to defend the belt which he 
won at the Agricultural hall. Ho was 
to win it on two future occasions be- 
fore he can call it his own. It is very 
likely that he will meet the Swede In 
a race next month.

It has been customary with us to make 
radical price reductions in millinery 
during our Mid-Summer Sale, which 
usually takes place in July. This year 
we are a little in advance in making a 
noteworthy offering of beautiful trim- 
med ready-to-wear hats. This is owing 
to the fact that our buyer bought ex- 
tensively and at a ridiculously low 
price during his .trip abroad. Saturday, 
we are giving all our patrons the advan- 
tage of this by placing a number of hats 
on sale at prices which mean a great 
saving. They include many innova- 
tions —the styles are diversified in the 
extreme. In fact every model shown is 
an exclusive one, which if sold in the 
ordinary way would sfell immahy cases 
at three times what we are asking for 
them, Saturday. Your choice at $2.50 
and $5.00. They are beautifully trimx- 
med with ''flo\^ers^^^ sprays and feathers 
of all hues and shades.
